  • "Oliver Horovitz had been accepted at Harvard, but he couldn't start for another year. A caddie since he was twelve and a golfer sporting a 1.8 handicap, Ollie decides to spend his gap year in St. Andrews, Scotland--a town with the U.K.'s highest number of pubs per capita, and home to the Old Course, golf 's most famous eighteen holes--where he enrolls in the St. Andrews Links Trust caddie trainee program. Initially, the notoriously brusque veteran caddies treat Ollie like a bug. But after a year of waking up at 4:30 A.M. every morning and looping two rounds a day, Ollie earns their grudging respect-- only to have to pack up and leave for Harvard. There, Ollie's new classmates are the sons of Albania's UN ambassador, the owner of Heineken, and the CEO of Goldman Sachs. Surrounded by sixth generation legacies, he feels like a fish out of water all over again and can't wait to get back to St. Andrews. Even after graduation, when his college friends rush to Wall Street, Horovitz continues to return each summer to caddie on the Old Course. A hilarious, irresistible, behind-the-scenes peek at the world's most celebrated golf course--and its equally famous caddie shack this book is certain to not only entertain golfers and fans of St. Andrews but also anyone who dares to remember stumbling into adulthood and finding one's place in the world."@en

  • "A coming-of-age memoir about a Harvard student's summer as a caddie on the Old Course in St. Andrews, Scotland. In the middle of his high school graduation ceremony, Oliver Horovitz received a call from Harvard. He was accepted but couldn't start for another year. A caddie since age twelve and a golfer sporting a 1.8 handicap, Ollie decides to spend his gap year at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland. In addition to the school having a 70/30 female-to-male ratio, the town itself has the highest per capita number of pubs in the United Kingdom and is home to the world's most fabled eighteen holes of golf: the Old Course. To earn money, Ollie enrolls in the caddie trainee program offered by the St. Andrews Links Trust and begins work as a trainee on the Old Course. Initially, Ollie struggles to gain acceptance and respect from the veteran caddies at St. Andrews. But after a year of looping two rounds a day and waking up at four thirty every morning to line up at the caddie shack, Ollie proves himself worthy. By this time, though, his gap year is over and he's due to return to the States to begin his freshman year at Harvard. When Ollie arrives at Harvard, he feels like a fish out of water all over again. Surrounded by sixth-generation legacies, he can't wait to get back to the caddies on the Old Course, and he returns to St. Andrews for each of the summers that follows for more caddie duty. As his friends rush to Wall Street banks and consultancies, Ollie opts to take what he's learned and walk a path of his own."
